ST. LOUIS - Monday afternoon was just a typical ride home on the school bus for Alex Fisher, Emilio Stewart and Vernon Brown. As the bus approached Fisher’s stop, suddenly that all changed. "I saw the bus driver shaking and then I asked her 'Are you OK?' and she didn't respond," Fisher, a student at Rodgers Middle School, said. "When she didn't respond I was like, 'There must be something wrong.'" Six students were still on the bus when the driver had a medical emergency.
A homeless man who served in the Korean War was laid to rest Tuesday at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Sargent Donald Woody, just shy of his 85th birthday, was homeless when he passed away earlier this month. Although there were no family members or friends who attended his funeral, he was not alone. Amy Patton, a Gold Star wife, found out about his funeral and quickly organized a group to attend Sgt. Woody’s funeral.
ST. LOUIS - For some of us, lunch was our best subject in school, even though the food was not that memorable. For the students and faculty at Lift For Life Academy — a public Charter school on South Broadway — every day’s meals are first-rate. That’s because of Chef Kenny Hayden. Chef Kenny has been cooking professionally for 30 years when he started as a prep cook at a café before working his way up to chef at several West County country clubs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
